And what of the girls? It is hard to be a girl these years. But you are helping in a thousand ways. You are looking for nothing so eagerly as for chances to help. Is this one? Eight years ago this October died a Wellesley teacher of English literature, Professor Sophie Jewett, one of the loveliest presences that ever gladdened our halls and campus, one of the most sure and sensitive interpreters of poetry that ever taught in our class-rooms, herself a poet of rare quality. She had great love, — for her students and other friends, for nature and art and all beauty, for Italy. She had great tenderness, a pity that responded to all suffering with deeds of comfort. The newspapers are full of the tremendous Italian offensive. It means, among other things, a multitude of wounded, and the supply of ambulances is griev- ously insufficient. The American poets have sprung to the rescue, appealing for funds so ur- gently, cabling over the money and buying the ambulances so speedily, that there is a good prospect of having at least fifty American ambulances on the Italian front early in October. Some of these are to bear the names of poets. Shall not one bear the name, precious in Wellesley memory, of Sophie Jewett? Two thousand dollars buys an ambulance and keeps it in commission for one year. There is a box in the college office for contributions. In case this should overflow, there is another in the Eng- lish Literature office. Who will help? K. L. B. "ITALIAN SKETCHES" APPEARS. The Annual Christian Association Reception was held in the Barn on Saturday evening, Sep- tember 22. President Pendleton, Dr. Snow, Anna Paton, Katherine Timberman, and Marie Henze received the guests. Anna Paton formally intro- duced the Christian Association to the class of 1921, and urged each member to share the ad- vantages and opportunities of the Association, and to give to it what it most needs — earnest, loyal support. President Pendleton, the next speaker, reminded us that the Christian Associa- tion represents better than anything else in col- lege, the ideals for which Wellesley stands, and she also emphasized the need for the co-operation of all in its splendid work. Katherine Timber- man, President of Student Government, and Marie Henze, President of Athletic Association, both members of the "Triple Alliance," welcomed 1921 and again urged their co-operation. Anna Paton then read greetings from Patty Westwood, Dorothy Mills, Marian Sawyer, Edith Chandler, and Mary Eliza Clark. FLAG CEREMONY. C. A. T.'S To assist 1921 in getting acquainted with itself and with other members of the College, the Chris- tian Association held a series of Teas on Wednes-» day, Thursday and Friday afternoons in Rhod- odendron Hollow. Rain necessitated holding the Tea in the Barn on Thursday, but on the other two days there was dancing on the green, where punch and wafers were served. The teas were unusually well attended and proved most successful PRESIDENT PENDLETON SPEAKS ON WELLESLEY CITIZENSHIP. A small volume of Italian Sketches by Sophie Jewett has been privately printed, and is to be sold for the "Sophie Jewett Ambulance," one of the "American Poets' Ambulances in Italy." Many thanks are due to the printer, Mr. F. H. Buckley of the Suburban Press, Natick, that the book is ready for the opening of college; n<? soldier on the Italian front can have carried into the campaign more of the spirit of gallant ad- venture than has he in printing, binding, and de- livering the book into our hands in a week and a day. The Editors. The ceremony of flag raising will be held at East Lodge every morning at 8:00 A. M. The lowering of the flag will take place at 5:00 P. M. Let us try to have a large and patriotic attendance; surely it is worth our effort. Student Government and all it should mean to Wellesley and its students was brought before the Freshmen as a class at a meeting in Billings Hall, Tuesday night, September 18th. President Pendle- ton spoke first of the responsibilities of being citi- zens in such a community as Wellesley, emphasiz- ing particularly those opportunities given us here which we can pay for not financially, but only by living up to the ideals of those who made Welles- ley possible. Katherine Timberman then showed how Student Government, as an organization, aimed to further the interests of this community and how we, as members, should observe the Student Government rules in the spirit of good citizenship, sacrificing our smaller liberty, if need be, to that of the Com- munity. WAR LIBRARIES. The college library will be glad to accept and forward to the distributing station books for the camp and hospital libraries being established here and abroad. Students and members of the faculty who have books which they are willing to donate for this purpose are urged to bring them to the library. Books of fiction and drama will be wanted most, sea stories, detective stories, collec- tions of short stories; French grammars and dic- tionaries are much needed; also books of travel, biography and history. No fiction can be too light, and books that are also light in weight and easy to hold are especially needed for hospital libraries. The American Library Association is planning a million dollar campaign for the purchase and care of books for our soldiers, and any contribu- tion to this sum will be gladly received at the li- brary. Every community in the United States will be expected to share in this gift, and a community like ours which knows the possibilities that lie in an interesting book to banish temporarily loneli- ness, homesickness and pain will wish to give gen- erously of books or money or both for the comfort of the men, who are giving up everything, many of them going regretfully and bravely from just such privileges as we have here. Ethei. Dase Roberts. THE DEPARTMENT OF HYGIENE IN NA- TIONAL SERVICE. The Department of Hygiene received on Septem- ber 3 a request from the Surgeon General in Washington to arrange a census of the graduates of the Department who would be willing to serve under contract or appointment with the United States Government in the reconstruction work with the injured soldiers at home or abroad. Al- ready scores of replies have been received, asking, with only two exceptions, to be enrolled for ser- vice either at home or abroad. REMINISCENCES OF SOPHIE JEWETT. Since it was decided to name our new ambulance on the Italian front for a Wellesley poet, it was most fitting to thus honor the name ot Sophie Jewett. Especially was this fact made evident when on Monday afternoon, September 24, some of those who had known and loved Miss Jewett came together in Tower Court to pass on some- thing of her rare character to those less fortunate. Miss Bates gave some idea of the unusual love which Miss Jewett had always had for Italy and of the intense horror which she felt for war and its atrocities. Miss Jewett particularly loved Christmas for its story of Peace. Three members of the choir sang Miss Jewett's Nativity Song, one of the most beautiful of her Christmas poems. A poem in memory of Miss Jewett, written by Miss Sherwood, was read by Miss Shackford who also pointed out the appropriateness of naming an ambulance which might do so much to rid war of its horrors for one whose greatest joy was to ease pain and alleviate suffering of all kinds. To Miss Scudder we are indebted for the picture of Sophie Jewett in Italy where it is said she travelled, never as a tourist, but as one who had come home. Her memory is still reverenced there among her many warm Italian friends. Miss Jewett responded in ever}' way to the spell of Italy and held it in an affection similar to that which she felt for her own land. In order to give some idea of Miss Jewett's relation with Wellesley girls Miss Hibbard and Miss Bachelder told of the qualities which made her a beloved teacher and friend as well as a great scholar and poet. Miss Calkins concluded the reminiscences with a tribute to Miss Jewett's wide sympathy— wide in the sense that it found no more difficulty in encompassing all lands and times than it did in suffering deeply with her closest friends. In an incredibly short time a volume of Sophie Jewett's own poems has been compiled and is now on sale at $1.00. In this way, Miss Jewett will herself play a part in raising the $2,000 necessary to buy and maintain the ambulance at the Italian front. THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS Boarb of JEbttors Dorothy S.

It is unnecessary to emphasize again the unique conditions under which we have entered upon the present college year. With the clarity of our vision as yet unblurred by the mere usual- ness of our surroundings, with the feverish un- rest and the cruel reality of the outside world fresh in our consciousness as the background against which we see Wellesley's undisturbed peace and insight into reality, we cannot but be impressed by the magnitude of the privilege which this new year of serious work offers. That the world has realized the significance of college training at this critical time is evidenced by its insistence that college work go on undisturbed; at Wellesley we have this fall an unprecedented number of students in all classes returning. In view of this concrete expression of the emphasis which our government and our parents are plac- ing upon the value of mental work, we recognize that this year of study is a privilege involving also an obligation — the obligation to think and act sanely as our greatest present service to the cause of democracy and as our fullest prepara- tion for what may be before us. This double consciousness of privilege and of obligation challenges us to a life of the completest achieve- ment and, as we enter upon academic duties once more, we are determining to meet them squarely, developing, not suppressing, a true sense of values. We are resolved to accept the challenge to achieve. To make the Wellesley College News serve in every way possible at this time to promote a life of achievement is the single aim of the Board of Editors. The News is unique among college or- ganizations in that its existence is justified only as it makes itself the agent of other forces at work in the community; only as a form of publicity which increases general efficiency can it be said to merit the time and money which goes into its production. It is therefore with an en- hanced sense of responsibility, with an increas- ing desire to make this paper of service to the Administration, to Student Government, to the War Relief Association, to new and old students alike, in short to every organization and individual of the community, that the News staff re-enters upon its duties. The editors realize perfectly the impossibility of accomplishing this aim alone; only through the co-operation of its readers can the News become a real promoter of efficiency in all branches of college life and we earnestly solicit such co-operation. We are al- ways ready so far as space permits to give public- ity to any event of interest to the college public; we are always glad to receive for the Free Press column the opinion, radical or conservative, of any individual in the community; we are always eager to receive your contribution, however slight, for the Parliament of Fools or College Notes. To the class of 1921 particularly we open our columns since we feel that they who have not as yet com- pletely accepted the ways of Wellesley will dis- cover much here which may be criticized <i r laughed at as well much that is to he praised. The News is your paper, useful only as it meets your needs. Cannot we all co-operate to make it the promoter of achievement which the editors desire it to become? "HIC INCIPIT VITA NOVA." At the beginning of its 43rd year Wellesley College proclaims to the world through the medium of the legend set forth on its recently adopted coat of arms that a new life is beginning. Never before in the history of the College, for it has grown up during years of prosperity and peace, could the promise of a new beginning have brought greater hope. The College of necessity takes on the aspect of the outside world. There is of course no question of the seriousness of the world situation and yet from the prediction of new life one cannot but gain a renewed confidence and faith. We here in College, despite our sheltered existence know that the year before us will be one vastly different from any past year. To a certain extent at least it depends upon us to de- termine wherein that difference shall lie. Despite the serious outlook we have but to turn to our College banner to gain a sense of optimism. Our motto should always be a daily reminder to be our best selves but be that as it may the inscription on the coat of arms is a distinct challenge and a warning to begin anew. If there is one thing more than another which the pres- ent crisis demands of every person it is to be free from the bondage of extravagance. It has grown customary when one speaks of extrava- gance to infer that the practice of economy is applicable only to concrete tangible objects. One of the greatest faults found with college girls is that they waste time — not in large amounts but in scattered minutes. This extravagance is no more to be condoned especially at the present time than extravagance in any more tangible form. The Administration has attempted to facili- tate the economy of time by compiling the present almost untried schedule. It is a great step but it is but the initial one and although we ought to find it a trifle more difficult under the new system to waste time in the early morning the entire result is "up to" us. There are countless minutes in every day, always before utterly wasted, which, if they were con- scientiously economized, might be put to some worth while purpose. What a new life Wellesley would lead if time was considered as precious as the numberless other things in which we arc con- stantly being asked to economize. FREE PRESS.

For Wellesley's best development, an expression of varied opinions, those of the youngest freshmen, of the most experienced alumnae, and of members of the faculty as well as of students of the upper classes, is very much t" be desired.

The Editors. WELLESLEY FORCES ENROLLED FOR WAR RELIEF. The aim of the Wellesley War Relief Organiza- tion for the year 1917-18 is to carry out the work of its various committees, and to meet as far as possible any urgent demands for War Relief, which may arise during the year. The organization is working in connection with the Red Cross Chapter of the town of Wellesley and with the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital of Boston. Such Red Cross work as sewing and knitting is done under the super- vision of the Wellesley Red Cross Chapter. The work of the Surgical Dressings Class is under the direction of the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, from which all supplies are obtained and to which all finished articles are returned. The mainte- nance of an ambulance abroad is to be continued during the year. The organization is headed by Elizabeth G. Frost 1919 who is to be advised by Miss Lowater. The work of the Surgical Dressings Class is in charge of Kathleene Murphy 1919 advised by Miss Louise Waite. The care and adoption of orphans and all work in connection with Armenian Relief is under the direction of Marion Hamblet 1919 and her adviser, Miss Tucker. Helen Moore 1919 as chairman and her adviser, Miss Streibert, see to the making and sending of garments and supplies to the refugees and children of France. The knit- ting material for the United States Marines is distributed by Amelia Henderson, 1919, and Miss Tufts, her adviser. The Social Welfare work for the United States Training Camps is carried on by Dorothy Black. lfl?l).

Read the newspapers seems to be a popular phrase just now, not only in college, where it is heard in every class, but also in the world at large. Though we have the significant fact pointed out to us again and again that we are living in the greatest history-making period the world has ever known, the large majority of us seem to have failed to grasp the importance of that fact. It is an acknowledged truth that the great American public as a whole, is the least in- terested in following the course of events in Europe of all the fighting nations. And this is especially true of the college public. We are so taken up with our own comparatively trivial in- terests that we constantly neglect the larger in- terests of the outside world. We fail to realize that every event of any importance whatsoever affects our lives, or will affect them at some future day. To be sure we do sometimes read the news- paper articles that particularly interest us, but more often we merely glance at the headlines. We seldom give any serious thought or discussion to the daily news. It is time that college women, who must play such a large part in the recon- struction work of the years to come, to cultivate a lively interest in outside happenings, an interest which should compel them to think for themselves on all questions of the day. The amount of news- paper reading done here in college is so small as to be a positive disgrace to any community, much more a college community. And this, despite the fact that a knowledge of current events is an essential part of our college course. Then, too, an important fact to be remembered in regard to this reading is that it is almost an absolute necessity that we read more than one paper. The different views taken by the various papers is interesting to note, as well as helpful in the promotion of our own opinions. In furtherance of this end, a newspaper stand is to be established at the elevator table, following the plan originated last spring. Beginning on Monday, October 1, all the best Boston and New York papers will be on sale there, and it is to be hoped that the college will avail itself of this opportunity of becoming acquainted with current events.

Mr. Horace Bentley English of the Depart- ment of Philosophy (1916-17) has left Wellesley this year to be with Major Robert M. Verkes of the United States Sanitary Corps where he will give mentality tests to the army recruits. In June, 1917, Mr. English was married to Miss Olive Jones of Hastings, Nebraska. Miss Edith S. Tufts will be resident at Tower Court during the ensuing winter. Margaret Christian, '15, has been appointed as General Secretary for the Wellesley College Chris- tian Association. Many former students of the college resident in or about Montclair, New Jersey, will be much interested in knowing that Miss Louise A. Denni- son, so long the head of Freeman House and later of Midland House, expects to be this year with her nephew, Mr. F. L. Gilman, 29 Erwin Park Road, Montclair, New Jersey, where she will be very glad to see old friends. Mrs. M. B. McComb (Grace Ewing, ex-'lS) sailed for England on Tuesday, September 18. The Homestead, more commonly known as the old farm house near East Lodge, has commenced its first year as a college dormitory. Ten sopho- mores, who would otherwise be lodged "some- where in the vill.", live there and take their meals at Stone. Before Wellesley College was even an idea, The Homestead was the home of Mr. and Mrs. Durant, — in fact it is said that it was there that they first started housekeeping. Later it became the home of the head gardener, and con- tinued as such until this year. '18. Lucy Besse to John H. Mitchell, Amherst. '14. '18. Gladys Gordon to Marvin Ray, Brown University, '19.

The freshman class was entertained with a live- ly and varied collection of stunts at the Barn Thursday evening. A military band led by Lieu- tenant Eli Hamblin furnished stimulating music, and an impromptu movie directed by Elizabeth Lupfer brought to light much talent hitherto hid- den. Doen Ting Chang, 1920, performed a series of juggling and acrobatic marvels which did credit to her freshman training in the Hygiene department. Members of the Wellesley College Choir (and others) gave a graphic and heartrend- ing operatic presentation of the assassination of Julius Caesar. His untimely death put an end to further activities until Pauline Holmes revived the stricken audience with dance music. Dancing was enjoyed until 9.30. THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS FLOWER SUNDAY. Dr. Gilkey of the Hyde Park Congregational Church, Chicago, spoke at morning chapel on Flower Sunday, September 23. In accordance with the Wellesley custom, the text for the first Sunday was "God is Love." Dr. Gilkey com- menced by saying that in this time of warfare we cannot help doubting whether God is Love. How- ever, he continued, our conception of God is measured by human thought and experience. If, in this terrible strife, we can love our friends and our enemies with the true love— a sacrificial love we can gain a true conception of the love of God. His love is a love that gives, not receives. It is this divine love that has plunged us into war and made us place social ideals, righteous- ness, and freedom above compassion and fair play. It is through this war, then, that we can begin to realize fully that God is Love. MISS BATES AT VESPERS. The early days at Wellesley must have been wonderfully happy. Mr. and Mrs. Durant had the college under a protecting wing and considered each student a protege whose welfare was their particular interest. Mr. Durant hung pictures, erected statues, bought carpets and scolded indo- lent scholars himself, preferring to take the tasks, interesting or unpleasant, upon his own shoulders than to leave them to be perhaps forgotten. Mrs. Durant was buried in the household management of College Hall. Her husband left that task en- tirely to her, after his first awed presence at the students' dinner time. He had not dreamed that young ladies could eat so much. Professor Kath- erine Lee Bates was an undergraduate in those days. At Sunday evening chapel, September 23, she talked to the college of this present day about the atmosphere in which Wellesley was founded, until the spirit of the past seemed to sanction our youth and bring the college ideals more vividly before us. Wellesley was founded after the death of Mr. and Mrs. Durant's two children. The college was their expression of parenthood. The estate which was to have been the home of future Durants be- came instead the temporary home of thousands of girls. The love and the care which the Durant children would have received has been lavished upon each college generation, and those ideals of truth, beauty and courage by which the children were to have known their parents have become the background upon which Wellesley girls have loved their college. IN CAP AND GOWN. The Senior class of 1918 made its initial ap- pearance in cap and gown at the chapel service Saturday morning, September 22. President Pendleton welcomed the returning classes and 1921 to a year of earnest work. This year, in view of the present world situation, is opening under conditions unprecedented in the history of the college, offering opportunities of productive work for the student. It is especially appropriate that this year for the first time there should be hanging in the chapel the ban- ner of the State of Massachusetts, and the Welles- ley College banner, hearing the coat of .inns adopted by the trustees last June. The coat of arms consists of an open book, with Dante's words inscribed on the page: "Hie incipit vita nova." In order to begin this new life of college with the spirit most needed today, the collection of tin- first Sunday morning service, as President Pen- dleton announced, is to go toward the Sophie Jewett Ambulance, which is In he sent to the Italian front. Wellesley was tin- lirst college I" send an ambulance in Europe three years ago, that ambulance serving until this spring, when the ambulance sent by the alumnae as a memorial to Frances Warren Pershing, '03, replaced it. As Sophie Jewett is one of the women of whom Wellesley is most proud, it would be an honor to send an ambulance in her name. RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED BY THE ACA- DEMIC COUNCIL. We who have • been associated in college work and life with Katrine Wheelock desire to place on record and to express to her friends the affec- tion and esteem in which we have held her. Miss Wheelock brought to her special and pro- fessional study, begun in mature years, not the ordinary preparation of a college course, but instead of this a somewhat wide culture individual- ly acquired, a singular devotion to the truth, and a habit of independent judgment. The influences which had shaped her mind and character came from her own thought and reading and from some foreign travel, but especially from a more than usually intimate contact with two strong personali- ties, — one Miss Porter of Farming-ton, a rare teacher and gentlewoman; the other, her own father, Joseph Wheelock of St. Paul, who was himself a thinker and leader of men. Her scholarly work in Theological Seminaries in Hartford and New York, and in her teaching here seems to her col- leagues no less than heroic when they think of the physical frailty always so simply and uncom- plainingly accepted as one of the natural limita- tions of life. For the last twelve years she has lived among ns. In these years she has set before her students in her classroom a lofty standard of intellectual honesty and of earnest and thorough work; she has increased their spirit of reverence and loyalty; she has enlarged and deepened their conception of the Bible student's task. In her life of the last ten years in a large freshman house she has had an opportunity to leave upon generations of younger students the impress of her personality, with its innate delicacy of thought and feeling, its refinement of manner, and its spiritual beauty. Her fellow workers, both students and faculty, will not forget the spirit of willing co-operation, the readiness to assume more than her share of every burden, the faithfulness in detail and clear- ness of judgment, the modesty combined with firmness, the spirit of service without regard for recognition which made all association in work with her an inspiration and a delight. Xo one could come in contact with this life without recognizing the sincerity of its faith. The religion which she taught was the deep source of her own serenity and unselfishness; the work to which she devoted her life kept her face to face with spiritual realities, and it is easy for us to feel that for her the unexpected awakening to a new task unhampered by physical limitations will lie as natural as was the opening of her hooks each day for a new day's work.

THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS DO YOU NEED POSTERS? Continuing the plan from last year, the ad- vertising committee will procure posters for all college events. Requests for posters must be made on slips which can be found in an envelope on the Student Government board, and be placed in a second envelope not less than one week be- fore the poster is to appear. Any girl who has not signed up to make posters, and who is will- ing to do so, please send word to Ruth Hornsey, C. Shafer. The more workers we have, the less each girl will have to do. If you can do no more than print, send your name in. Ruth Hornsey, Chairman. IN THE CHAPEL. Since the change in schedule, the class of 1918 seems to have adopted the balcony of the Chapel as a new Senior transept. Well, 1918's habit of prompt appearance at Chapel has been so firmly established through long years of college experi- ence, that no one could expect it to be changed in a single day or week. "COME OUT OF THE KITCHEN." Henry Miller will present Ruth Chatterton in A. E. Thomas' newest comedy "Come Out of the Kitchen" at the Hollis Street Theatre, Boston, for a limited engagement beginning Monday, Octo- ber I. "Come Out of the Kitchen," with its present cast and production was presented first at 'the Columbia Theatre, San Francisco, a little over a year since. It was received in that city with such sensational enthusiasm that the capacity of the Columbia Theatre was taxed at every performance for five consecutive weeks. This is a record which has never been equaled before by any form of dramatic presentation in that city. Following this record breaking engagement in San Francisco, Mr. Miller took Miss Chatterton and the original company intact direct to New York City where they were seen for thirty-two triumphant weeks at the Cohan Theatre. "Come Out of the Kitchen" proved one of the most pro- nounced successes of the New York season. The play tells a fantastic story of a Southern family reduced in circumstances. They lease their ancestral estates to a Northern man, and through their inability to provide him with the servants he expects, members of the patrician family, un- suspected by him, assume the humble duties and wait upon their tenants. There grows out of this situation a pretty romance, which is told with sympathy and humor.

She was at Pitts- burg on her way East, to make some visits and to join the group of classmates who were to meet at Commencement and make plans for their 25th Reunion next June. To those who knew her only in her college days her name recalls the finest type of college girl, loving fun and beauty and all that is fineness; but to most of us her quick and exquisite sympathy with every weariness or distress whether of soul or of body crowned all and symbolized her nature. To those who have known her of late she showed in fullest development the qualities of her girl- hood. Her unchanging loyalty and affection, her unflagging care for others, her steady, unques- tioning devotion to high ideals, her courage and serenity under the burden of ill health, her utter selflessness, united with sound judgment and an unerring taste in which enthusiasm and humor were met in wholesome balance, made of her the ideal companion, at once comforting and stimulat- ing, and of her home a supremely happy and beautiful haven never to be forgot. (Signed) Elizabeth R. Kellogg. Frances Lucas, Josephine P. Simroll, Sarah Hickexlooper Withrow, For the Class of '93. MRS. FREDONIA S. CASE. For members of the College in those changeful years '86-'95 and especially for members of the College Hall household, the announcement in the News of the death of Mrs. Fredonia S. Case renews precious memories. One recalls again the heartening presence, the strong but kind and comely face, the shapely head, the glint of golden- white hair. Mrs. Case lived among us as a faithful and efficient officer of the College, a true mother spirit, and a distinct intellectual and moral force. The calls of her office were incessant, but she always had time for sympathy and for counsel, for cur- rent events in the round world, and for books tested by time. After she left Wellesley, Mrs. Case lost noth- ing of her interest in the place and its people. Her letters often made us feel as if we wire tin- absent and mindful and she in the glowing con- tinuity of things. To advanced years, she held fast for herself the principle of ministering rather than of being ministered unto. At an*age when most would have thought themselves permanently excused from service in the sick-room, Mrs. Case, hearing of the illness of an already much in- debted friend in a lonely farm house, packed a bag of needments, engaged n carriage, and presented Jranklin Simon & do.

The vision of her as she came along the winding Vermont ways that summer evening is one of the best memories of life. After she left the College, Mrs. Case lived in Worthington, Ohio, and there she closed her earthly sojourn. She had been losing strength slowly but unmistakably, and both her son, Mr. William W. Case, summoned from his home in Hubbard Woods, Illinois, and her daughter. Miss Mary S. Case, from the wonted summering place in Dorset, Vermont, had been with her for some days.
